MSc Economics, and PhD Economics

I finished an MSc and PhD in Economics from Birkbeck college. During the MSc I found that the lecturers were excellent at presenting highly mathematical material in a manner that was intuitive and applicable to real world problems. In particular, I found that the MSc provided me with a strong background not only in economic models and econometric techniques but also ideas about their application.

The PhD program at Birkbeck college benefits from a results oriented approach, diverse research interests of the faculty members and in particular from the willingness of all staff members to provide guidance and help on research. I felt the PhD program provided me with skills and confidence to try and build a career in economic research.
